I'm always cruizing around Blogger to find crazy Christians to make fun of. Today I found one:
Project Ezra - Dedicated to the Public Reading of the Bible
Dan Beaudoin - "I am a 30-something evangelical Christian with a passion for street evangelism and open-air preaching."
Ah, you're one of those guys that nobody can stand. You think it's cool to go out into public places and shove your crap on everyone!
Why is that necessary? Why do you think it's cool to shove your beliefs on everyone? Then you hide behind the safety of your blog and refuse to let anyone comment who disagrees with you. What are you so afraid of? If you have the ultimate truth, then why hide?
I've got two ideas about why religions bloggers usually censor:
1. They know that their arguments are all based on fantasy and can't stand the thought of actually having to provide some evidence.
2. They don't want their readers to see any opposition. The more they are exposed to the the opposing arguments, the more likely it is that a few of them will actually turn their brains to the "on" position.
If truth is truth, then it should stand on it's own. You wouldn't need to go out and preach. I assume you drive a car? Have a cell phone? Use the internet? How long did someone have to preach at you with a loudspeaker until you were finally convinced that driving is much faster than walking? That using a phone is much easier than screaming? That the internet is just cool?
I'd bet that no one did, and that's my point. Anyone who has to scream and yell in order to be taken seriously is fighting a losing battle. If your religion could save everyone and was the ultimate truth, then people would be lined up at your baptismal font day and night.
If something works, people use it: light bulbs, wheels, digital cameras, computers, etc. How many of these things operate on faith? None of them.
And the worse part is that if someone else came up to you and started preaching, you would tell him he's insane and to take his nonsense somewhere else. Can you see the irony here?
I would have said all this to him on his own blog, but he censors (surprise, surprise) and he will only let you comment if you kiss the ass of Jesus right along with him.
So, Dan, believe your fairytales and nonsense all day long, but stop shoving it on other people!
